    I can’t seem to pronounce conscience properly. It always seems to come out of my mouth wrong.

    Maybe the proper “American English pronunciation”, but certainly not the correct French one.
    This channel is not a benchmark for the pronunciation of words and brands in French, German and Italian, that sounds just completely wrong…

    I love the concept, but I don’t suggest that youtube channel to anyone who is trying to pronounce words in foreign languages correctly. His french isn’t bad, but he is mispronouncing some things. His dutch, on the other hand, is fairly abysmal…though, in all fairness, he does explain on the sidebar that his pronunciation is the American English way.

    I’m never sure if I’m saying “Miu Miu” right!

    As mentioned earlier, it is not the way french, Italian, etc. would pronounce those words, so it’s a nice find but not for those who want to learn foreign languages 🙂
